logoMarket Overview

Plant based meat or alternatively known as fake meat or substitutes are food items derived from plants and eaten as a replacement for animal meat. These products typically have the same effects as real meat in terms of nutrition, flavor, mouth fullness, chemical properties, and physical appearance. They are generally consumed by vegetarians or vegans. The main difference between the two is that vegetarians do not consume animal meat whereas vegans refrain from any product, clothing and food items, which passed through any process that led to cruelty against animals, including abstaining from animal-derived dairy products like milk, cheese, yogurt, and others. The most widely used ingredient is soy to create meat substitutes like tofu, and textured vegetable protein, however in many cases wheat gluten is used as well. The growth in the global market cap is anticipated to help reduce the environmental impact of the meat industry, as with the growing population, the demand for meat products may increase resulting in severe damage to the ecosystem.

logoCovid-19 Impact

The global market suffered during the pandemic which was majorly driven due to the disruption in the supply chain and partial functioning of manufacturing units. Issues related to the availability of raw materials also impacted the global market. However, in the long run, it is projected that the virus may have a positive influence on the global market size as more people are now showing an inclination toward refraining from animal-based products.

logo Growth Drivers

  • Rise in arguments about the long-term ill effects of meat consumption to propel market growth

The global plant based meat market is projected to grow owing to the rising concerns over debates about the potential ill-impact of meat consumption for a long time. These discussions, even though currently not completely established, have led to an increased hesitation amongst consumers and many people are now preferring plant based food items over animal-based products. As per a study published on the National Library of Medicine website, some cohort studies in the United States (US) and European markets have concluded that long-term red meat consumption, especially processed products, is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), higher mortality rate, type 2 diabetes, and colorectal cancer in women and men. Some of the diseases are fatal and do not have a concrete treatment plan resulting in more people choosing the healthier option.

logo Restraints

  • Concerns over labeling to restrict the market growth

The global market growth trend may be negatively influenced due to the growing concerns about the right labels that should be used for plant based meat. For instance, many states and regulatory bodies have asked organic meat producers to remove the word ‘meat’ during advertisements as the product does not qualify as a meat product. Many meat processing companies have managed to win legal battles against the use of the label ‘meat’ as it is termed a misleading marketing campaign.

logo Opportunities

  • Rising number of players to provide market expansion opportunities

The global market cap size may benefit from the rising number of plant based meat producers. Even though the substitute has been in point of discussion for many decades, only recently it has received the necessary spotlight resulting in an increase in the number of companies willing to invest in the global market. Alongside, there are multiple other ways like mergers & acquisitions, collaborations, and joint ventures through which the players are expanding their foothold which will subsequently provide more growth opportunities

logo Challenges

  • Questions about the authenticity of plant based meat to challenge market growth

There have been some reported instances of animal testing being a part of the process through which plant based meat is created. This directly contradicts the claim of plant based products that they are free of animal cruelty thus challenging the authenticity of the products and subsequently the global market growth. Many companies like Chipotle, have refused to use plant based meat since these products are extremely highly processed food items rendering them not as beneficial as they are claimed to be.
